  Joshua E. Witsman
Name: Marine Lance Cpl. Joshua E. Witsman

Age: 23

From: Covington, IN

Assigned to 2nd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, I Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Pendleton, Calif.

Incident: Marine Lance Cpl. Joshua E. Witsman died May 30 in Helmand province, Afghanistan, while supporting combat operations.


Vigil honors Indiana Marine killed in Afghanistan

The Associated Press

COVINGTON, Ind. &mdash More than 1,000 people gathered in the western Indiana hometown of a Marine killed in Afghanistan to remember him as a fallen hero.

The crowd honoring 23-year-old Lance Cpl. Joshua Witsman overflowed a block along the Fountain County Courthouse square in Covington Sunday evening. Most held lit candles for the vigil that began with music followed by a Boy Scout troop presenting the U.S. flag and colors.

Lacey Weatherly tells the Journal & Courier that Witsman's death gives her more appreciation of her father's time in Iraq with the Indiana National Guard.

Patty Gritten tells WLFI-TV that she's glad to see the small community pulling together after Witsman's death.

Witsman's body arrived Saturday at Dover Air Force Base, but the military hasn't yet released information about how he died.


Died: May 30, 2012

Paul C. Holter III

Miss you brother


Alex D Gonzalez

Love you and miss you always. Since you been gone it has been hard for everyone. I know you loved what you did, and I want to thank you for our freedom. If I can have you back home and safe living your life man everything would be different. No matter how much money they would offer me I would rather have you alive and home. Money comes and go so it's not worth losing you.


Christopher D Young

hello my name is Jesus Vega I would like to give my condolences to Christopher's family and friends, I served with him in Iraq and slept in the same quarters. I have many fond memories of him. I have never forgotten his sacrifice. I would like to share that the greatest memory I had of Chris is that he would speak highly of his mom and how much she meant to him. Chris was a strong minded person and looked out for other. He was kind and friendly the he made friends with everyone. Chris was truly a great man! I sincerely apologize for not sharing sooner. but would like to express that Chris's memory will never be forgotten! though he is not with us he will always be in spirit! If this message gets to Christopher's mother I she could know she raised a great man and for that I thank you.

James David Parker

I knew James David Parker as "Dave" when he lived in Solon Ohio. We met when I moved into town from out of state. He and his group of friends were a year or two older than me. Dave was a bright beacon of hope and joy to me. I was an unsure young man in a strange place. Dave introduced me to many people and ensured his friends always saved me a seat in the lunchroom. I have fond memories of him and his friends during that time. I doubt so many people would have been as wonderful toward me without Dave's incredible kindness. I've never forgotten his kindness. I hope to be able to pay it forward someday.
